Secrets to a Great Night Sleep

Sleep

"A good laugh and good sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book." - Irish Proverb.

This proverb always made sense to me.  Especially when you consider Traditional Chinese Medicine which emphasizes the body's natural daily cycle.  The "organ time clock" specifies certain times for restoring the energy of certain organs:
 
If you are waking up during these time frames, then you should look at the emotions, and function of the organ to determine what you may need to address in your life.  For instance, if you wake up between 1 and 3, you should consider if you are annoyed or angry about something. If you are not, then maybe you should consider if you have consumed something that isn’t good for your liver like, alcohol, spicy foods, or foods or beverages you are allergic to like sugar, wheat, or dairy.  Laughter helps here, because when you laugh the movement of your abdominal muscles helps to clean the liver, or so it is said.  So laughter may be the best medicine.
